Wooden lockers are less common than metal and plastic lockers, but they work well in many environments and provide beauty. Wood lockers tend of appear more upscale than metal or plastic lockers, and are often found in country clubs and some offices. They are often ordered as replacement lockers during remodeling.

What are the benefits of wood lockers?

  • Aesthetics and style. Wooden lockers can come in a variety of wood types and with attractive finishes that can add an accent to a health club, office, or country club. Since the material itself shows grains in the wood which stand out nicely with some polish, there is no need for painting. Wood lockers also go with almost any furniture and can be elegant or casual.
  • Wood is strong and durable. Unless placed in an extremely humid environment or in an area where they will receive a lot of wear and tear, wood lockers promise to last a long time and look great for years to come. Wood, unlike metal, does not rust and look unattractive as it ages.
  • Wood lockers are environmentally friendly. Wood naturally pulls some carbon from the surrounding air, reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Easy maintenance. All wooden lockers typically need is to be dusted and wiped down when needed.
  • Wooden lockers can come in varying widths, heights, finishes, and wood types. Laminate surfacing is also available which protects the wood from the elements and microorganisms and allows for easier cleaning. Some wooden lockers even come with attached bench seating which is ideal for locker rooms, and there are open designs available as well which can help prevent the buildup of moisture and mildew.
  • Accessories are available. Wooden lockers can come with lockable cubbies, name plates, digital locks, garment hooks, and more. This makes wooden lockers attractive for schools and sports teams.
  • Wooden lockers lift mood. Environment plays an important role in the mood of employees and students. Natural environments help to lower stress and improve health.
